Selection: Magical realism


Magical realism

This year’s Summer Exhibition is called ‘Reclaiming Magic’ and it’s about restoring value to marginalised practices. Magic – with its connotations of child’s play and the occult – is perceived as being foreign to Western ideas and enlightenment thinking. These are themes that Yinka Shonibare RA and the Selection Committee have pulled out in their choice of artists this year.
